Dear All;

*CONTENT WARNING - SEXUAL MISCONDUCT*

Stepping back into the group for a bit to bring up a fairly serious issue that has hit the musical fandom in the last few days. In case you haven't heard, James Barbour has been slated to replace Norm Lewis as the Phantom on February 9th (read more about it here: www.broadway.com/buzz/179085/h…)

By all accounts he is a talented star, unfortunately, he is also a criminal. In 2001 he "pleaded guilty to two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, both misdemeanors, in exchange for a promise that he would be sentenced to 60 days in jail and three years’ probation." "Mr. Barbour told Justice Micki A. Scherer of State Supreme Court in Manhattan that the girl visited him in his dressing room before the final curtain call and that he fondled her, knowing that she was only 15 years old. He also told the judge that he had oral sex with the girl in his apartment the next month. She did not come forward with her account for several years."(source: www.nytimes.com/2008/01/04/nyr…)

This casting is particularly disturbing considering the respective youth of the Christines (Julia Undine, 21 and Kaley Ann Voorhees, 20) currently a part of the production, the content and often sexual tone of the show, and the legion of young female fans who will undoubtedly fawn over this actor. The Phantom is already a fairly predatory character, it seems fairly noxious to cast a convicted predator.

There are, of course, people on both sides of the issue. Some argue that talent should come above all else and since he was not registered as a sex offender, there is no legal issue. I am personally, however, distressed for the above mentioned reasons. I am also concerned that public ignorance of his past and the casting decision to ignore it will contribute to an atmosphere of rape culture that puts celebrity and talent above the well being of young women and other vulnerable people.

Barbour has made no public apology for his actions (that I can find) and that I think is what makes me most uncomfortable personally. No admittance of guilt allows for no kind of repentance or forgiveness.

If you are interested in protesting this casting decision, there is a change petition going: www.change.org/p/cameron-macki…

Please feel free to comment on the issue below, but PLEASE keep it kind, considerate, and reasoned. This is a hot topic, but please do not be hot headed.
